The first game was rained out. We were all sick so it was fine by us (actually I was WAY more disappointed than anyone else in my family) and we moved on.
Game 2 (or 1, however you wanna slice it) We went out and were prepared for the worst. He was pumped but somewhat skeptical. He had been coached and played some soccer at school but nothing to this degree. This was outside soccer, this was real. (His words, not mine)
Before the game they do some fun warm-ups.
One of the silly warm-up games was for the kiddos to pretend they were asleep while the coaches snuck up on them.
This was during Dane's ear infection/pink eye illness so the terrible wind was just not working for him. I know you can't tell from the pictures above but the wind was terrible and it was really cold. My ears hurt so I knew his did too! Gaga was nice enough to travel to the other side of the field so the wind wasn't blowing in his ears. He still wasn't very happy about the whole thing.
Notice the cheering squad in the background? Yes, almost the entire family came to cheer him on! God love these people!!
Three on one.. Impressive!
and although it is terribly blurry, I had to share this.. The cry. It was inevitable. I haven't a clue what happened but he melted. A little pep talk and he was good to go!
